Secret

That moment between sleep and waking,
when limbs lie heavy sinking into stone wall

unconsciousness.

Where I can float on unseen currents of air,
find you standing without misconceptions.

That moment between life and love
when the heart stretches to open,

when passion flies in like a golden eagle,
with the sun flaming its wings.

Each time I see you it’s the same
that huge unseen force that empties out the room,

I devoid of oxygen am gasping like a fish
on your outstretched hand.

Lovers mingle at the corner of the street
traffic noises whirr inside our lives, but, you and I adrift,

an unknown sea of stars collide at corners of the bar
where neither one can speak, of the love we feel.
